Invite your officers to your organization to begin adding content to your organization. COSO recommends you add the following:

  • Files, including your constitution/bylaws, minutes, agendas, old funding proposals, etc.
  • Build online forms. 
  • Add events and meetings to your organization's calendar.

We also recommend making your ABOUT page the landing page for your group.
